A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on belief, credo, manifesto, tangibles, and reality

Belief?  What do I believe in?  I believe in sun.  In rock.  In the dogma of the sun and the doctrine of the rock. I believe in blood, fire, woman, rivers, eagles, storm, drums, flutes, banjos, and broom-tailed horses…

The ultimate human goal is faith without belief.  Beliefs can mislead us, but faith is the pure, deep well that knows no bounds.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on existential, belief, imagination, consciousness, perception, being, and mind

If I was to survive, I must literally believe myself into being. This, of course, was essentially no different from what I'd always done. I'd simply believed in myself until, in fact, I existed.

A Quote by unknown on religion, life, peace, acceptance, respect, knowledge, justice, truth, wisdom, and belief

In my lifetime I have learnt that one race is not superior to another.
In my lifetime I have learnt that one sex is not superior to another.
I await the day when one religion is not considered superior  to another.

A Quote by Diana L. Eck on love, faith, belief, christianity, christ, intellectual, heart, and language

Credo is the word with which the great creeds of early Chistendom begin.  “I believe. . .” we say.  The Latin credo means literally, “I give my heart.”  The word believe is a problematic one today in part because it has gradually changed its meaning from being the language of certainty so deep that I could give my heart to it, to the language of uncertainty so shallow that only the “credulous” would rely on it.  Faith, as we have seen, is not about propositions, but about commitment.  It does not mean that I intellectually subscribe to the following list of statements, but that I give my heart to this reality.  Believe, indeed, comes to us from the Old English belove, making clear that this too is meant to be heart language.  To say “I believe in Jesus Christ” is not to subscribe to an uncertain proposition.  It is a confession of commitment, of love.
